Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage, also known as UM/UIM is some of the least expensive insurance you can buy, but it is one of the most important parts of your automobile insurance coverage. UM/UIM covers you and your family when they are injured in a car accident by another driver who is uninsured, or who doesn't have enough coverage to pay for the extent of the injuries they have caused. All Ohioans are required to carry automobile insurance, but many simply don't. An even higher number of Ohio drivers simply purchase the state minimum which will not begin to cover the medical costs of injuries you receive in an accident, or the long term ramifications on your life.
